Now in its 11th year, Giving Tuesday will again inspire individuals to give to nonprofits worldwide.

Lutheran Social Services of Northwestern Ohio has participated in Giving Tuesday since its inception, with the goal to raise $1,000 that first year. This year’s Giving Tuesday is on November 28.

Last year, the agency raised more than $12,000. Our goal this year is to raise $15,000.

“Events like Giving Tuesday are vital to agencies like ours that rely upon the generosity of others who believe in the work we do,” LSS Vice President Tracia Jaksetic said. “We have big goals and high hopes for this year’s Giving Tuesday, and with the kindness of others, I know we can meet it.”
